Lake-Conroe is a 21,000-acre lake nestled in Montgomery County in southeastern Texas. A small portion of the lake lies within the town of Conroe, Texas, but most is in the unincorporated Montgomery County. Lake Conroe lies on the west fork of the San Jacinto River, just west of Interstate 45 off of State Highway 105. The lake sits within the East Texas Piney Woods region. It is approximately 21 miles long, with 5,000 acres within the Sam Houston National Forest. Lake Conroe was built in the 1970s as a water supply for the city of Houston, but has also become a popular recreational lake. It's only about 40 miles north of Houston and the nearby town of Conroe is described as "a sleepy little backwater town." Many people visit the town as a tourist get-away spot, and the major portion of the lake is only about seven miles southeast of the town. Many different outdoor activities are available, including fishing, boating, hiking, camping, horseback riding and more. Downtown Conroe has two historic theaters, and an outdoor amphitheater offers free concerts April-September.

Lake Conroe Weather & Climate

Southwest Texas has a humid subtropical climate with very hot summers. An average of 99 days per year reach above 90 degrees F. High humidity causes the heat index to rise even higher. Winds are often light in the summer and offer little relief from the heat. This region is often called "the most air-conditioned place on earth." Spring super cell thunderstorms sometimes bring tornadoes to the area, although it's not officially part of "Tornado Alley." Winters in southeastern Texas are mild. Snowfall is rare. The average high in January, which is the coldest month, is 63 degrees F. Average annual rainfall in this area is 50 inches. Storms dump large amounts of rain causing flash floods.
